The British American Football Coaches Association have announced a new batch of coaching courses for Spring 2019.

The BAFCA Level One Coach Safety with Heads Up course costs £48.56 to participate, but is an essential pre-requisite to coaching at any level of the sport in the UK.
If you’re interested in getting into coaching, this is a must-have qualification. Many programmes will support players and prospective coaches to assist them with qualifying for their BAFCA Level One – speak with your local programme and see if there’s anything they can do to help.
If you’re interested in a coaching course being held in your region, you can let BAFCA know by using their expression of interest form.
The new, enhanced, BAFCA Level Two qualification allows you to take your coaching to the next level – but please note participation in the course requires the completion of a number of pre-requisites including the Level One qualification, one full season of coaching experience, along with the completion of an online ‘Coaching Principles’ course and USA Football’s Youth Tackle Certification.
